If you had a good holiday season last year, there's a strong possibility that you got socks from some practical-minded loved one. But if you're Kim Kardashian, and your practical-minded loved one is Kanye West, you got stocks instead – in some of the most lucrative companies today. I guess in this particular marriage you have to do a little better than socks for Christmas gifts, even if it's just by one letter.
All told, Kardashian revealed through an Instagram Story that Kanye had given her untold shares in Netflix, Amazon, Apple, Adidas, and Disney:
"Okay, so for one of my Christmas presents from Kanye he gives me this little box with a Disney Mickey toy, Apple headphones, Netflix, Amazon gift cards and Adidas socks. I'm like, 'That's so sweet, thanks!' But then I open the next box and it is stock to Amazon, where he got the gift card, stock to Netflix, stock to Apple where he got the headphones, Adidas stock and Disney stock."
Not all of the stock amounts are clear in the video, but the Disney stock was reportedly worth about a hundred grand, while the Adidas stock comes to over $168,500 for the 995 shares seen under the Kardashian-West Christmas tree. Even if the other stock certificates are only worth a hundred grand each, you're looking at well over half a million dollars worth of stock before its value as a long-term investment starts to appreciate in the future – and that's not even counting the headphones, gift cards, and the other decoy gifts!
Some people might find the idea of stock as a Christmas gift as a little off-putting, but it's safe to say that Kardashian seems pretty pleased with the gift, captioning the reveal portion of her Instagram Story "Best Husband alert!"
